Pierce: in the midst of suffering

Sunday, September 27, 2020
    Feast of Vincent de Paul, Founder of the Congregation of the Mission (Lazarists), 1660
Bless the LORD, O my soul:
    and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
    who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction;
    who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;
    so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
    —Psalm 103:1-5 (KJV)
    Jesus Christ can so interfere in a human life that it can look up and say, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits,” even in the midst of sorrow or suffering.
    ... Robert Pierce (1914-1978), founder and president, World Vision, in a private communication from World Vision
    See also Ps. 103:1-5; 146:1-3; Luke 1:46-47
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have granted me the ultimate hope.
